Prof. Dr. Dieter Riemenschneider

Without literature only available on prescription the Berleburger Literaturpflaster would be unimaginable. Prof. Dr. Dieter Riemenschneider grants an insight into the literature of the host country.

Plenty of his publications deal with modern and the literature of the Maori in New Zealand. His enthusiasm and expertise are shown in his new work "Neuseeland fürs Handgepäck" and a collection of poems.

All guests can expect an exciting evening, that is literary promising and informative. The tradition of the literary appetizer is continued in the friendly atmosphere of the literature-drugstore.
